Nice park. Have caged animals and plenty of gators. Nice gator show. Visit the Sweetwater Café there. They have primitive huts you can stay in. Good air boat ride with lots to see.

The airboat ride was outstanding. Thoroughly enjoyed the safari buggy ride. Thanks to the outstanding guides. This was a great trip to take friends visiting Florida on.

Wait is long. Capt promised to take us because we were waiting four hours. Got back from buying tickets and he left, had to wait another 30 minutes. Such a waste of time and no compassion! Would never return here.

We went there with a tour company, it was disgusting to see the yellow earplugs everywhere in the water and in the park, plastic bottles on the nature trail. The restaurant is very slow and when you want to eat outside of the restaurant you...More

Just get there early I think at 9 and go into shop to get on the list. You can see animals while you wait. And call to be sure there's one at 10;30 or 10 am. Leave 25 minutes minimum to drive into the place off I 75.
